Top 5 reasons to jailbreak your iPad or iPad 2

Now that iPad 2 can finally be Jailbroken, many of you are considering it and are asking us whether or not it's worth it. Jailbreaking has always been popular among iPhone users, but some believe iPads already do what they want a tablet to do and aren't as sure about the need for the extra functionality Jailbreak provides. With iOS 5 on its way this fall, the gap between stock iPads and Jailbreak will be closed even further.

So should you Jailbreak your iPad 2? Keep reading to see some of our top reasons why iPad and iPad 2 users may want to jailbreak.

Add some flare to your photos with LensFlare

BrainFeverMedia has updated their photography app, LensFlare, with two new lens flares: SuperFlare and Transformers. This apps gives you the ability to add lens flares to your photos.

Features:

  • Amazing Realism
  • Resize, Rotate and Scale
  • Brightness control
  • Lens Dust Effect
  • Dynamic Edge Glare

Flare types:

  • Cinematic Style Anamorphic Lens
  • Natural Sunlight Flares
  • Subtle Glints
  • SLR Camera Lens Types

Lens flares used to be considered a photographic flaw and lens makers have put in a lot of effort to reduce this effect as much as possible and photographers have invested in lens hoods to help prevent it. Recently, however, it has become all the rave and viewed as artistic. Even so, not all lens flare is good lens flare, and it is very difficult to get right with an iPhone. Personally, I think LensFlare is perfect for the situations when bad lens flare is involved in my photo and I want to make it look good.

LensFlare is available for $0.99. Screenshots after the break.

Apalon's little iPhone game, Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey, is a relaxing fashion game with the only goal of dressing up your monkey.

  • Make up an unusual outfit for one of the four adorable characters: Rebel, Princess, Sage, and Granny
  • Be in control of just about every aspect of a model’s look, including hair style, eyes and skin color, and even mood of your virtual friend!
  • Take advantage of the large collection of different accessories: hats, wigs, scarves, bows, glasses and more!
  • Choose fancy backgrounds for your monkey: Sunny Jungles, Icy Forest, and more!
  • Share your monkey via email, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or save it as wallpaper!
  • Find additional “packs” of accessories and backgrounds that are available through the built-in store

Although primarily targeted towards children, I enjoy playing with this app. I like cute little cuddly things, and it's fun dressing up my little monkey. My favorite feature is that in addition to accessorizing, I can choose a facial expression for my monkey that matches my personal mood. Such a great little time killer.

Remote Potato HD heading to the iPad, Windows Media Center and iPad in perfect harmony

Remote Potato HD is coming soon for the iPad and if you’re a Windows Media Center user this could be the perfect app. With Remote Potato HD you can browse and stream all of your Windows Media Center content directly to your iPad in high resolution; locally or over the internet. You can also access your Media Center EPG (Electronic Program Guide) and schedule recordings all from within the app.

Another great feature, if you have an Apple TV, is AirPlay. As Remote Potato HD uses the Apple video player, to play back content, AirPlay can be used to stream to your Apple TV 2. This would enable your Apple TV to become a type of Media Center Extender.

In order to use the app with your Media Center system, you will have to install an application that handles the streaming and transcoding. This is available free from Remote Potato. The app has already been submitted to Apple for approval; so expect it to arrive any day now. No news on pricing yet but the existing version for iPhone and iPod touch is priced at $6.99.

There is a video demo of the app after the break. It looks like a fantastic solution; if you are a Windows Media Center and iPad user. I will be trying this one out as soon as it is available!
